Ipsy July

Sunsationally Sunkissed 

Sorry this is so late this month! It came in the second week of July and for the past two weeks I've been busy with work I haven't had the free time to sit down and blog. But here it is! 

Judging from the theme title of this month's bag I had a feeling I would be receiving either bronzer, tanning lotion/oil or sunscreen. I was correct....

POP Beauty Sun-kissed Bronzer
I loveeee this product. A matte, glitter free bronzer. Thank god! A lot of bronzers come with glitter in them and it's nice to have a matte one for my collection. When I saw this colour in the packaging I thought it would be way too dark for me but its actually really nice. This has become my daily use bronzer.

Bare Minerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0
I am really excited about getting this brand. Getting high end brands is awesome. I have wanted to try out of a few of bare minerals products, this is a start.  The colours are nice, the pale colour makes the best highlighter. And I love purple so they nailed this one. The pigmentation is perfect too, unlike the last purple duo I got from Pacifica. 

Pixi Beauty Mini Tinted Brilliance Balm in Unique Pink
Pixi Beauty has given out some good products through Ipsy so this product made me happy. At first I was worried because the shade is so boring and it's mint scented. But I have really chapped lips all the time and the mint soothes them nicely. The colour sort of just enhances my natural lip colour which is fine. This is something I take to work with me to keep my lips moist. 

Derma e BB Cream with SPF 25
I haven't had much luck with bb creams since they became a thing. I am not even sure if I'm going to try this one out. I don't really have a purpose for it.  Plus I think the shade is a bit too pink toned for my skin. The SPF additive is a bonus for someone who uses bb cream. I will hold onto it just in case. 

Pur~lisse Moisturizer with SPF 30
I am not overly joyed about this product. I have a giant container of my daily moisturizer that I love so don't really need this. HOWEVER, it is a bonus that it has SPF in it. Could be used wisely as a base before applying makeup if i plan to be in the sun. I can avoid nose sun burns that way. 

Overall I was happy with this month. I am actively using 3/5 products so it's a positive this month.

  1. I love bareminerals. I got a huge mystery box from them with like 12 products for $40 and I loved every single product in it.
    I swapped to get both of the pixi balms. I was sad I didn't get them in ipsy this month.
    Hopefully two great bags for our birthday months will lay ahead :)

    1. I hope to see more bare minerals in the future! Fingers crossed for good months ahead.
